This initiative falls in line with the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE’s Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, to support companies, the business sector and workers in the emirate of Dubai, by enhancing their financial solvency and mitigating the impact of the global pandemic.  

In line with various government policies and strategies aimed at consolidating Dubai’s leading position as an attractive environment and the best city in the world to live and work. This program aims to ensure the happiness and satisfaction of all employees working in the free zone as well as enhancing their positive energy and productivity levels, and increasing institutional loyalty rates. Such endeavors are geared towards keeping in pace with the aspirations of investors, entrepreneurs and talents to enhance their happiness in the regions’ best professional environment. The program represents an integrated platform that features listings of all the offers and privileges provided by both public and private sector companies and brands for employees in the free zone.

This initiative aims to enhance the experience of investors and companies in the free zone, aligning with our strategy, which is focused on satisfying our customers and providing the utmost support to their employees,” said Amna Lootah, Assistant Director-General at DAFZ. “We seek to cooperate with various free zones across the emirate to expand the scope of the program and broaden its beneficiary base by ensuring that it is accessible to all the related employees.”

“The design and implementation of this program follows a careful consideration of the needs of the community of employees in the free zone, which contributes to realizing our CSR plans,” Lootah added. “The launch date of the program coincides with the beginning of the summer season and the return of the tourism sector, which allows beneficiaries to enjoy the many offers available during this period.”
